Hi Mayla,

As a matter of policy, this Office refrains from rendering categorical opinion on matters and issues that may later on be the subject of an administrative proceeding before the Commission either via an appeal or a complaint. This is to preclude the possibility of prejudgment should an actual administrative case be commenced or instituted based on the said matters or issues.

Be that as it may, please be advised, that R.A. No. 7160 (The Local Government Code of 1991) provide that the Local Chief Executives (i.e. Governors of Provinces, Mayors of Cities, and Mayors of Municipalities) shall be the appointing authority in their respective local government units, except in their respective Sangguniangs where the appointing authority shall be the Vice Governor in the case of Provinces and the Vice Mayors in the case of Cities and Municipalities.

On the other hand, the local government unit’s Human Resource Merit Promotion and Selection Board shall assist the appointing officer/authority in the judicious and objective selection of candidates for appointment in the agency in accordance with the approved Agency Merit Selection Plan (Section 85, Rule IX, 2017 Omnibus Rules on Appointment and Other Human Resource Actions).

For purposes of clarification, take note that the Commission has resolved that the function of the HRMPSB is to assist the appointing authority and not to recommend candidates for appointment or promotion. (WATCHORNA, Agatha P., CSC Resolution No. 040678 dated June 17, 2004)
